Redskins add linemen to roster and practice squad

By Jason Reid

The Redskins have signed defensive lineman Jeremy Clark to their active roster and added rookie defensive lineman Joe Joseph to the practice squad, the team announced Thursday.

Clark, listed at 6 foot 3, 295 pounds, began his NFL career with the Philadelphia Eagles in 2007 as an undrafted rookie free agent. He has bounced around the league with many teams, spending most of his time on practice squads.

A four-year starter at Alabama, Clark could provide help along the defensive line. The team suspended two-time all-pro defensive lineman Albert Haynesworth without pay for the remainder of the season.

Joseph, listed at 6-2, 315, was originally signed by the Tennessee Titans as an undrafted rookie free agent. The former University of Miami player also spent time on the New York Giants' practice squad.

Dofs are indeed Swedish. You can look, but don't touch. Julian Assange was like a moth who flew too close to the flame.

Our practice squad players could kick the asses of all the other practice squad players!

Why not steal players from practice squads from ggod franchises and cut old washed up vets at this time of year? We should look at adding young future potential and dump the guys shanny doesn't want. It would be like a welfare draft.

------------------------------------------
As infrequently as this happens, I get the feeling there is some kind of secret agreement between NFL GM brethren that they will not poach from each other's rosters. I hate the practice squad. I think it is the lamest thing the NFL has done in awhile. Why can't the NFL develop a legit farm system like baseball where the team has the rights to any player in the farm system? What would be wrong with that?

If Bill Polian got 4 players(Glenn, Devan, L.James and we traded Tryon for a seventh) and the beagles got 2 starters(dixon & patterson) then we don't know a hill of beans how to evaluate talent. Because these two teams(colts, beagles) excel at it and we just give them players we deem expendable, yet those teams are good every year and we stink because our talent level is far inferior to just the other teams in our division, much less the league. Another underlying problem with our dysfuntional team.....Even the young talent we get , we don't know how to evaluate and then we over-value the players we keep. Jeeze Jimmy the cricket, i could have done without realizing all these players we let slip thru our fingers. doesn't bode well even if we get a million draft picks, we don't know what to do with them! Think it was just a vinny thing, look at who we drafted this year. only williams made our active roster out of camp out of six picks. Riley ,austin, capers, cook eventually made our practice squad & austin, riley onto team for various reasons( all were exposed to the rest of the league). Not sure shanny and Allen are the best evaluators to move this team forward....F the cowboys

Clark has bounced around the NFL for 2 years.

Great. This is the best guy for us to take a look at for the last 3 games?

There is no player on a PS around the NFL with better promise than Clark?

I admit we are dumpster diving to try and find players, but do we have to go THIS far down into the box?

Clark was cut two weeks ago by Dallas because he could not tackle a manakin. he makes that bum kemomonoply look like Deacon Jones. this team is the biggest tea bag party in the history of football. shame on all the hillbillies and 3-6 mafia fans for wearing that crap costume snyder puts these clowns out there in. the play like crap, have no coach, have no leaders, look like crap... khairtaing!

"Clark was cut two weeks ago by Dallas because he could not tackle a manakin."

Wow! Manakin? LOL!!!! If you're going to make a crack, at least learn how to spell.....it's "mannequin".

Look, these in season acquisitions happen all the time. I'm not sure why this is considered news?

Posted by: gsykes32 | December 16, 2010 6:17 PM | Report abuse

Maybe we should swap the practice squad players with the active players? How much worse could they be? Who knows..guys who were on other team`s practice squads..may
be able to start here.
AT LEAST THE GUYS THEY JUST BROUGHT IN ARE YOUNG.
